What to eat: It's a small family-run cafe with a lovely rooftop. I loved the chocolate pancakes and the cheese-loaded dosa pizza.
A roof cafe with an easygoing, pleasant and uninhibited ambiance, Kasha ki Aasha is the perfect place to to laze away the time, read a few books and write a blog post or two as you wait out that uncomfortable midday heat. The European Thali, Indian Burritos, Thai Cold Noodles and the Sweet Tooth Pancake are an absolute must-try!Price: BudgetOpening Hours: 9am to 8pmWatch out for: Chocolate CrepeAddress: M.G.

1) Kasha Ki Aasha (Art Boutique and Café)Being an artist, I fell in love with this café even before I stepped in. This ethnic café is run by a group of women, or should I say sisters, and is a perfect example of women empowerment. The ground floor has an art and craft shop with the café housed in the terrace. You can buy funky postcards, magnets, souvenirs, clothes, slippers, home accessories, handmade soaps, and lots of artsy stuff.
Kasha ki AshaKasha ki Asha is a boutique and cafe run by an all female team. This rooftop cafe is hidden in Surcouf Street. Their main selling proposition is the unique ways they prepare the european cuisines with Indian twist or vice versa. Indian enchiladas or European Thalis are liked by many people.
A café, a rafts shop and a fine example of colonial architecture, Kasha ki Aasha, promises a feast for the senses. The European thali is a good option as are its cakes and pancakes, all served on the rooftop.
